Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time (1 Peter 5 v 6).
God promotes and exalts the humble, but resists the proud. When you read about the Lord Jesus, the Bible says he “made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”
David was also an example of a humble person. Even though he had been anointed to be king over Israel, he never spoke evil of King Saul, though the latter was after his life. Even when he had the opportunity to kill Saul, he still referred to Saul as “my master” (1 Samuel 24 v 6).
David went on to become Israel’s greatest King, because of his humble spirit. God himself described David as “a man after my own heart” (Acts 13 v 22). What an honour to be described this way by God Almighty.
Therefore, if you remain humble, God will definitely and surely promote and exalt you at his appointed time. Get rid of arrogance, rudeness, selfishness, jealousy, malice, hate, anger, strife, and pride. People in the world today are hurting, because there is no LOVE. The Bible instructs us to love each other. Learn to love and be humble, for that is the path to greatness.
